EEDAR has released its April console sales estimates for the US, with the Xbox 360 numbers significantly lower than that of Michael Pachter.
Xbox 360, still the most successful HD console. All MS need to do is release Alan Wake, Halo ODST, PGR5, Forza 3 and drop the price of the premium before christmas and they have won 2009. The ps3 wouldn't be able to recover after an assault like that.
ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS RELEASE GAMES AND DROP THE PRICE?! Do you work in marketing? With these radical ideas you should consider it! I'm serious... a game console sells well when it has games and the price is low... whoa. My mind is, officially, blown.
They have already won 2009, even if they don't release those games and drop the price ;)
360 outsells PS3 by 100k, it's been the same the past 3 months. The real impacts are made during the holiday when consoles really sell big.
just another person that gets cheap confused with better
Didn't get to finish, and then had connection problems. But you have to be crazy if you think 360 has this year won. Look at what happen last year, PS3 won the early months then XBOX 360 got a price cut and took momentum during the holidays. If PS3 gets a price cut for the fall, I think they have a good chance of doing really well this year when it really matters. I would rather win the holiday months when console sales reach in the millions.
You know everything. I bet you go to harvard.
"Xbox 360, still the most successful HD console." In terms of sales Yes (although not good enough), in terms of Exclusives, Quality, Features, System stability & Entertainment Capabilities... No.
I dont think PGR5 AND Forza 3 both need to be released just Forza will do fine PGR can be swapped out for Splinter Cell
Forza against GT. Thats like me against Ali; I can throw down on my own, but against the best, I'm nothing.
so this generations winner has already been declared. Nintendo killed Microsoft and Sony. What reality did the Wii's success that the Xbox nor the PS3 can ever catch up to mean for gaming? Absolutely nothing. Its not the days of sega. You can have 2 losers that are still pumping out titles that are selling millions, and creating sequels. Sales are insignificant this generation. Whats significant is: Hardware superiority Exclusive gaming experiences Hardware Quality Free Online Experience The 360 loses at every actual significant measure. If something selling more at 199 and launching a year earlier than a 499 product helps you sleep at night, by all means enjoy your sleep. It might help you remember that you've been playing nothing but Gears, low rated Fable,low rated ninja blade, flop SE RPG#4394, low rated race pro, low rated velvet assassin, and low rated Halo Wars since 2008 along with multiplatform PS3 games. While getting charged for free peer to peer gaming. Wheres the victory party! I'm bringing cake. You guys have been "buh buh e3" the same titles since forza2 was launched... the mantra of "buh just wait for e3" has been the exact same, with the EXACT same titles: Splinter Cell: zomg MGS killer! buh buh we want MGS tooo Forza3: Zomg GT Killer! buh buh.. the graphics are compromised for da da bending fiberglass..and the reason ferrari doesn't debut their vehicles in forza is.. uh.. Huxley: BIGGEST BADDEST MO.. wait they reduced it to 32 vs 32? so no 100 vs 100 on screen? wait.. the dev isn't starting on the 360 version utnil the PC versi.. damnit. Warhounds: LOOK AT THAT PC TECH DEMO! Alan Wake: Going to be one of the BEST games EVER created because .............................. .. And now you've added in 953 other games that are just oddball PC/360 releases, just like we've had this entire gen that come and go without any significance. the 360 library has over 400 games, you guys own 30 of them. Rinse and repeat... Last e3 MS bought a ps3 exclusive, which is always the biggest news for 360 owners, getting to play PS3 games.. and announced AAA hits like Lips, and You're in the Movies. And previously "unexpected first time ever heard of" titles like Gear2.
Actually your describing what went down for MS Post E3 2008. Sony was doing very well at the beginning of last year in the States http://www.digital-digest.c...
You took the words right out of my mouth when you said if you're going by sales, the Wii has been and looks like it will always be the winner, unless something comes out that will turn the tide. Ignoring the Wii is why the 360 and PS3 are not in first place... in the first place! :D
imo, if you're a gamer and not a fanboy, and own all the systems(like me) then you've already won! imo, this has already been the best generation for hardware and software, and it's not even finished yet! all the systems have had/will have some great exclusives...and thats not even mentioning some of the great multi-plats. everythimg has got to turn into a fanboy idiot fest on here...BOTH sides need to get a grip.
"All MS need to do is release Alan Wake, Halo ODST, PGR5, Forza 3 and drop the price of the premium before christmas and they have won 2009. The ps3 wouldn't be able to recover after an assault like that." In my opinion, both a new Forza and Project Gotham racing game probably won't have as big of an impact because those games have already hit the 360. Gran Turismo 5's impact will probably be bigger than both a new Forza and PGR game combined, especially in Europe and Japan.... GT is one of the biggest Racing Sim's EVER. Even if Microsoft were to release all of those games in addition to a price cut, all Sony would have to do is release GT5 with or without a PS3 price cut and Europe alone would be secured for 2009. There's been little to nothing shown from Alan Wake for ages, and most likely it's not coming out this year. Halo 3 has already hit the 360, so I don't see Halo: ODST making that much of an impact either because Halo: ODST will only be huge for people that already have Halo 3, not for people that haven't bought the game. A lot of big 360 titles/francises have already come and gone, but there's still many big Playstation franchise games that have yet to hit the PS3.
system sellers left besides gow and gt series. thats it.
Just owned all the fanboys..and i love how they just disagree and disagree but they dont reply back... because they cant!
the PS3 is barely at about 27.5% of it's lifetime, do you really think this generation is over already to claim the xb360 as the winner?
The idea that Sony just needs to drop the price they will win is flawed. What prevents MS from following suit? Sony drops $100, MS just drops $50. Xbox 360 still half the cost of PS3 and who is hurting more? This is not to mention suddenly the Xbox 360 is even closer to the price point of PS2. Notice how PS2 is priced at half the Xbox 360 Arcade. Furthermore, it would take PS3 years to catch up to the Xbox 360 lead even if they sold 150-200k more consoles a month worldwide. What Sony needs to do is focus on releasing quality exclusive games as they are to differentiate their product and expand their PSN marketplace. They should try to offer something unique to the PS3 and avoid engaging in a price war with MS. I highly doubt mass consumers (not frequent gamers that research and is in the know) really look at a product and say, the PS3 has wifi, blu-ray and etc... it is worth twice the cost! Fact is there is too little differentiation between Xbox 360 and PS3 to the mass consumer. They see most games comes out on both platforms, but Xbox 360 is half the cost and can be expanded. Who do you think they are going to pick? What do you think the retail salesman is going to recommend when most of the profits made are on accessories? Lower price, means more potential for accessories sold. What has helped Sony is massive dedicated fanbase, MS widespread hardware failure and Playstation branding. Continue to market yourself as a the elite console system alas what Apple does with their computers. What is surprising though is how well the PS3 still sells despite the significant higher price point. I think at this point it is too late to focus on winning against the competition, but rather stay profitable as they are working towards. Go ahead and disagree, but don't be an anonymous coward. POST an INTELLIGENT response!
"The idea that Sony just needs to drop the price they will win is flawed. What prevents MS from following suit? Sony drops $100, MS just drops $50. Xbox 360 still half the cost of PS3 and who is hurting more?" erm...microsoft? how much profit could they really obtain after another price cut after already being the cheapest console on the market "This is not to mention suddenly the Xbox 360 is even closer to the price point of PS2. Notice how PS2 is priced at half the Xbox 360 Arcade. Furthermore, it would take PS3 years to catch up to the Xbox 360 lead even if they sold 150-200k more consoles a month worldwide." i have no proof but i dont think microsoft have a 8 mil lead and i make this assumption soley on npd multiplat sales. the 360 should be selling millions more but thats not the case "What Sony needs to do is focus on releasing quality exclusive games as they are to differentiate their product and expand their PSN marketplace. They should try to offer something unique to the PS3 and avoid engaging in a price war with MS." there already doing this, infamous, heavy rain, GOW etc plus no announced price cut "What is surprising though is how well the PS3 still sells despite the significant higher price point." and that is why some sony fanboys proclaim "gameover" when the ps3 finally gets its price cut and to be honest, i agree to an extent
Yeah if its not selling more than the wii and its 200bucks imagine if they sell it for its real price 100 bucks!! it would be off the shelves!
Oh dear god that's hilarious. Basically, 'all' MS have to do is the opposite of what they're doing now and they're peachy? Why the fudge aren't you on my 'ignore list'??
When PS3 drops in price Microsoft will drop price again, but they are in no rush to because they are losing money on each system sold. Sony is losing money on each system as well but they are losing less per system than Microsoft due to the higher PS3 cost. But Microsoft has market penetration as its goal over profits so another price drop will happen.
"New Message: 56 minutes ago | By: I did not murder him | Block PS3 PS3 fanboys may bubble eachother up and disagree in swarms but most gamers find them to be rabid morons please stop while you're ahead. http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... They know they have 0 argument. So they just hide behind disagree. Im an anti-extremist fanboy. Nothing wrong with havnig a favorite console, but to pretend MS is going to have some amazing e3 based on absolutely the same exact thing that is hyped every e3 is retarded. And the fact that their biggest news is always playing ps3 games is what is the nail in the coffin.They are looking forward to which ps3 exclusive they get to play. cant say its the same for the sony e3 lineup. If a sony consolite was looking forward to a 360 exclusive, they would just play it "exclusively" on their old PC that runs the game in higher resolution than the console counterparts anyway. Sales sales sales, yet they want to ignore the wii.
Xbox 360 beat the PS3 this generation. You will get over it, there's no other choice. And nothings going to change it. See you at E3. : )
So I'm delusional for believing the Xbox 360(ya know, the console with the 10 million lead, that had beaten PS3 at evrything possbile this generation...now being almost 4 years old) has beaten the PS3? Ha your the only one who's delusional. PS3 has lost. I'll leave you with this....realize in your brain how long it would take PS3 to catch up: Greenberg said he's "confident" that Microsoft will outsell the PlayStation 3 throughout the current generation. "I can’t imagine any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us," he said. "In fact, even if you doubled the current PS3 sales and Xbox 360 remained flat, they couldn’t close the gap until 2014." LOL!!! PS3 isn't going anywhere in the first place! Sorry but you lose....will at E3 also.
"erm...microsoft? how much profit could they really obtain after another price cut after already being the cheapest console on the market" Well, if Sony is reducing their cost what makes you think MS is unable to? Furthermore, MS has shown that they can continue to make a profit not only from console sales, but also games, accessories and Xbox Live! Gold subscriptions. MS has the highest attach rate of any console period. "i have no proof but i dont think microsoft have a 8 mil lead and i make this assumption soley on npd multiplat sales. the 360 should be selling millions more but thats not the case" Well, with almost twice the number of consoles on the market in the US (since you use NPD numbers), it would seem that multiplat should sell double. A number of games sold even (almost none sold better on the PS3 of any significance) and a number of games sold as much as 2-2.5 times. December 2008 (NPD): Call of Duty: World at War - Xbox 360 – Activision – 1.33 million* Call of Duty: World at War - PS3 – Activision – 533K Calendar year 2008 (NPD): Grand Theft Auto IV - Xbox 360 – Take-Two – 3.29 million* Grand Theft Auto IV - PS3 – Take-Two – 1.89 million* source: http://www.gamedaily.com/ar... Keep in mind that the 360 is plagued by rampant piracy and it still outsells the PS3 with a large margin on some games. I see no trend either way based on your assumption other than there might be a preference of type of games for the different user base. Furthermore as the console user base gets larger the ratio between game sales to consoles sales start to taper off. "and that is why some sony fanboys proclaim "gameover" when the ps3 finally gets its price cut and to be honest, i agree to an extent" I frankly don't see how unless the price is so close that the features significantly gives the PS3 an advantage (read less than $50 difference), but by then we are probably at the next console generation and it is no longer of significance. A $300 to a $150 difference is still too large a difference in price. In addition, what people often forget is that a console purchase is a commitment which means additional accessories are likely to be sold. Do you want a game with that console? Do you want an extra controller? Suddenly it adds up.... As I said, I think Sony long realized this and wisely changed their strategy focusing on profitable business instead of chasing a costly victory at this point that is far fetched.
Quoted like a true Westerner... Please, try and look beyond your shores and come to grips with the FACT that there is a big wide world out there. Good gravy I swear if you ask most of the Western Video Gamers if the world was flat they would say yes and that the planet Earth should be called Planet North America. If I recall correctly, the PS3 sold more than the 360 world wide in the past two years running... Am I right? And my second question... Does any of this matter to the games?
the U.S. is not the world numbnuts
People are just a little too slow to understand that.
where are the worldwide numbers? im not being sarcastic just asking.
U.S. if these numbers are close. 360- 210,000 PS3- 160,000 Japan weeks ending April 5th- April 26th 360- 33,614 PS3- 124,941 PAL region??? Totals 360- 243,614 PS3- 284,941 EDIT: PAL Life to date through January 2009 360- 5,500,000 in 36 months 153,711/month PS3- 4,500,000 in 21 months 214,285/ month http://www.kotaku.com.au/20...
When you use numbers like that, I guess it's not a win if you look at the totals.
Rather than bicker over estimates, why not just wait for the results and then bicker to your hearts content :)
Exactly, bubbles for having some sensibility.
just not care
Not care? This is N4G damn it! We care about everything! The NPD numbers are like Christmas every month.
YEa, I consider the PS3 defeated in teh short term battle, but they cant win the war, they dont have the global clout at this point. Maybe next Gen, the days of 5 yr life cycles is over, but I wouldnt go as far to call them 10 yet, I would say 7 yrs is more like it now. 10 yrs just meants after the new one is out we still keep the other going, 7 is about where they will be before a new system comes out period going forward, SONY will win the 7 yr stride, MS wont the short term fight. I expect next gen to be about dead even from beg to finish.
a 10 year lifecycle is when the particular console is still having games made for it for 10 years or over... it doesnt matter if the same company make another console within that 10 years... even if another console came out a year later and the original console still lasted 10 years, it still had a 10 year lifespan... so really your comment is incorrect... hasnt the ps2 nearly done 10 years already? so the 10 year lifecycle thing has already been done... i would rather a company still supports their product even after they release more up to date tech.
oh and as for them being equal next gen, im wondering how MS will be affected by their failure rate? i hear from almost every xbox360 owner that they have had rrod or e74... will that facture in peoples decision next time? i know the same people who have hed these failures with their hardware still defend their purchase (which is kinda crazy if you ask me). i feel that at the moment these 360 owners kinda feel trapped because they have spent alot of money on games and addons, so they cant trade them in and get the ps3 as they would lose so much money, but will they think twice next gen? i know where my money is anyway lol
10 year life cycle is what you need in a console who wants to buy a new console every 4-5 yrs. As far as the "console sales race" goes depending on what MS plans to do about supporting the 360 after the next Xbox is out the entire console race can end up quite differently. This is why sales shouldnt matter to a gamer, ultimately the sales side cant even be seen til these consoles die off. All I want is a bunch of Great GAMES! Im sure all the GAMERS will agree, since the sales dont make me enjoy any of my games any more or less. [email protected] 4.2 A friend of mine works for UPS and is a die hard Sony supporter, He tells me about how many Xbox360 systems he picks up and drops off weekly and its crazy and thats just in my area. One guy said he sent it back a Whooping 8 TIMES! I guess since they have invested so much they keep going back for more. Personally for me 2 scratched games & 1 RROD and i was DONE with Xbox completely.
raiinstorm... yeah it just bogles my mind really how many people go out and buy one... but i guess thats owed alot to the so called price difference, or rather the illusion of there being one... im no diehard sony fan i mean i hated the first 2 playstations, but the ps3 is just quality i had to get one... anyway like you say the sales dont really matter to gamers... and i too wanted some ace games, so its lucky i went with sony lmao
how does a xbox 360 fan feel outright joy when xbox360 outsells the ps3 by 100,00 in america ? I like mcdonalds over burger king. should i celebrate when mcdonalds charges to eat there? think about it.
well.. If there was a pricecut for sony`s ps3. it might start a stir. hmm...i dont know...hard to tell.
Relax children of the corn (sony leg humpers).... NPD numbers will be here soon... and the same old thing will happen... PS3 will be on dead 3rd... gap will widen.. and you will keep moaning and b!tch!ng like the pathetic losers that you are. lol.
but you have to say 100 thousand behind isnt really that bad.
& since you got no games & nothing to look forward to, your only option is brag about sales like a typical xbot (M$ coock suckers)... :D
Bladestar, you're pathetic man, I guess Halo Wars didn't hold you over for long enough ?
I've seen you in post after post after post repeatedly insulting, attacking, misleading, & lying about Sony, the PS3 & Playstation Gamers. Now here you are, again calling gamers "Sony leg humpers" I HAVE HAD ENOUGH, and I suspect so has EVERYONE else! A lie of omission is STILL a lie & in many posts now I have pointed out with actual facts that YOU are a liar. Why you are allowed to continue commenting here, only the Mods know. You are a continually disruptive, negative blight on News 4 Gamers & an insult to EVERY gamer. With your admission that your "wife" (the horror...the horror) bought you a PS3 several weeks ago...it all became clear: You got $500 of hate from her, & it's a sign . . . She's leaving you! Leaving you for your local Sony GameStop rep's deadbeat, school dropout, beer-infused, grandfather. You've seen the tracks from his walker to your bed! You've counted your missing Viagra! You've found the worn out Dualshock 3 under her pillow! You know she considers him & his tiny geriatric c0ck a STEP UP! It's OK Bladestar! We all understand now! We understand your pathetic, pointless hate is really because your hurting...(likely every time you look in the mirror) We all know every time you say "Sony Leg Humper" it's really your wife your talking about. We all know it's driven you to becoming Bill Gates 'Leg Humper' (Even when it's Microsoft) We all know it's not Children of the Corn that bothers you, but the corncob up your azz. You see we're all Gamers...PS3 & 360 alike...but you . . . YOU are the only moaning and b!tching pathetic loser that I see. .
wow.. it's not everyday that I get an essay written in my honor... You put so much effort into to it that I should probably let you get a glimpse of one of my butt cheeks. "I'm a 360 Elite Owner" lol! genius didn't you check my profile... I have a PS3 too... but that does not change the fact that it's nothing more than a expensive movie player... which is the only reason why I purchased it... Man I wish PSN would be like xbox live that show activity so you can actually see the last time I actually played a game on it. I can see how my comment anger you so much... it sucks being a sony leg humper this days... it's must hurt like hell... probably like taking a dump out of your pipi whole.
Man bladestar, I wish I have gotten a broken 360 on Ebay so that I can trash it with justification. /s
Zeevious: It's the Open Zone, chill out man. Where are you people when the 360 is trolled like this on I would say %95 of the articles? If someone jumps on a Sony leg humper they are told to chill out it's just the Open Zone. Sometimes there will be no comments at all just 1 troll at the top. I'm all for being fair and being sick of all the trolling but for fvcks sake don't make this a one way street. Just look at what you attracted with the comment: Obama, Myspaceisevil, OmarJA.. All 360 haters and trolls. It's like Bladestar rang the dinner bell and they all came running. Even they know what they are. For every 1 360 troll I will give you 5 Sony trolls. Obama: Coming from you... well.. yeah.. You need to look up the word fanboy because you sound like you are confused on the definition. I do not blindly agree with and defend everything MS does and I don't bash everything Sony does. I still can't help but defend the 360 more than PS3 though, that I'm still working on so you got me there.
lol Giantenemycrab you are trying so hard to be neural but u still haven't gotten rid of all your 360 fanboy color.
NOTE: Just to be accurate in full disclosure...I am NO Sony or MS 'fan' I RETURNED my first PS3 from FEB-MAR of 2007 because I wasn't paying $600 for a machine that couldn't play a DVD to the end without locking up! (and got an unbelievable deal on another 60gig model just a few months later after the E3 price reduction) In addition to one Excellent Elite...I, in fact, own two PS3's now after the $250 holiday deal. Both consoles are FUN...and fun is ALL this should be about! I routinely oppose YOU Bladestar, because I oppose anyone who outright lies and routinely misleads for the sole purpose of dividing people who should stand together. WE ARE GAMERS HERE...and should be gamers FIRST. Whatever you are, you are NOT a gamer. NOW TO MY REPLY: (yeah...I ain't done with you yet.) It's not everyday you get an essay written in your honor??? Not by Gamers no...Psychoanalysts maybe... ...But 'in your honor' ? Wouldn't you need to have some for that to be possible? I think you might want to think about who's the gamer-supporting genius: The guy who's pointed gamers to great 360 & PS3 deals...encouraging everyone to enjoy their console or consoles of choice...with his humor & ultra-super linguistic powers, respecting gamers everywhere... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... or . . . You? (THAT's back just 100 days through MY amusing, unbiased comment history...where's yours?) I'd believe you didn't know I owned a PS3 if this was the FIRST time I'd commented against your unending console hatred...I've pointed out the truth of your lies many times now. . HOW ABOUT ONE MORE VERY PERSONAL LIE... (Oh...Here's YOURS...) 36 Days ago (as of this comment date) you stated in this message : http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "My WIFE game me a blu-ray player today(PS3) with 2 games. Metal Gear 4 and Warhawk." TODAY (as of this comment date) YOU stated YOU have a PS3 too and YOU BOUGHT IT as a movie player. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "I have a PS3 too... but that does not change the fact that it's nothing more than a expensive movie player... WHICH IS THE ONLY REASON I PURCHASED IT." So now YOU...not your WIFE bought the PS3, and SHE didn't buy you TWO GAMES, Metal Gear 4 & Warhawk...because YOU bought it just as a movie player. (hurts to own a PS3...like "taking a dump out of your pipi whole." (sic - meaning your spelling MORON)) With this lie ALONE you have done far, far more to validate EVERYTHING I've said here...in every response pointing out your lies, and in opposition to you or anyone f*cking with ANY gamer, than I ever could. You are the ultimate disappointment...to yourself...to all consoles gamers, everywhere...and sadly, to your own wife. I don't know what we should pity about you more... The fact that you actually USED someone you should love, respect, and be a partner to...TO FABRICATE ANOTHER LIE... ...or the fact you're still inhaling perfectly good air we could be breathing.
and it's an apology owed to to all the members & admins here...by Bladestar. His own reply to my comment, calling him out as the liar he is, is more proof than I ever could have convinced you or anyone else with. HE USED HIS OWN WIFE TO FABRICATE ANOTHER LIE. Think about that for JUST ONE MINUTE. How much exactly would a person with absolutely this little self-respect show for gamers and the N4G community? ABSOLUTELY NONE...which is EXACTLY what Bladestar has shown for eveyone here in misleading, lying, fabricated comment after comment after comment. I am generally respectful of different points of view in the Gamer zone, but here in the open zone, I am less constrained by my polite nature and far less tolerant of outright liars. Bladestar is an outright liar...and I can point you to as many examples as you'd like to confirm this is NOT an isolated incident. I believe in the right to express yourself...that's why we are all here, except for members like Bladestar. There can be NO explanation for the consistent, repeated, divisive misinformation & clearly biased hatred expressed over and over and over again as Bladestar jumps in PS3 after PS3 gaming thread. When do we as gamers finally stand up against this? When it is one lie too many for us all? When do we decide someone should finally be banned? When, exactly do we simply ask to be able to use N4G for what it was created for? I for one have had enough...and frankly, in reply to my unique form of humorous truth, BLADESTAR HIMSELF proved he's is not just a liar. He's proven he's one with so little - and worth so little respect he would use his OWN WIFE to fabricate & post even MORE lies here on N4G. This leaves only one question remaining: Is that what your really supporting? Is this what ANYONE's really supporting?
@Zeevious - so... basically your entire argument and rant against me is because you blindly believe that I do not own a PS3 and I made it all up... This should be easy to verify by looking the games I played on my PS3 gamertag...unless of course PSN sucks so much in comparison to the xbox live that you can't do something so simple. But since I enjoy making your sony leg humpers feel stupid and make them realized how wrong you always are in your assumptions... this is why I waited this long to simply post picture that prove that I am not lying... basically all you said was for nothing... lol! Enjoy the pictures. Sorry about the quality I used my phone. http://lltmdg.blu.livefiles... http://lltmdg.blu.livefiles... ... you see... that proves you are nothing but a sony leg humper.. and errrrr.... I have a PS3.
I am sorry Zeevious. But i have followed Bladestar on most of his posts and i disagree with your opinion of him. Bladstar has ALWAYS used sources to prove his points and opinions. Yes he is more pro 360 but he was also a PS1 and PS2 supporter back in the day and has stated he leans towards the console that he feels is best suited for his gaming needs. And this gen MS has provided him with the 360 that he feels best suit his needs. Most of Bladestar's posts are well infomative with lots of sources to back up his opinion oppose to many Sony Fanboys that proclaim opinions as facts and distribute nothing but BS. And this site is Dominated by ignorant Sony fanboys. So you can imagine the amount of BS that is flung around this site. For you to attack Bladestar and completely ignore the constant Sony Fanboy BS and so many of their multi-account users that do nothing but TROLL and spread FUD i find is Appalling. You should be ashamed of yourself. Get a clue of who the actual people are that are ruining this site then you can start pointing fingers to people that spread sh1t. until then your pathetic comments against Bladestar are rather pointless as you seem to be confused as who the actual TROLLS are on this site...
Well, it seems like a p*ssed off a couple people with my comment. First off, myspaceisevil I apologize for calling you out as a troll. I invite anyone to look at your comment history(some funny comments in there) but I see no trolling or any fanboy crap so I WAS WRONG when I called you out in my comment. I hope we are cool and I will not call anyone out like that without having all my facts straight. Second, Zeevious: I don't agree with your profile of Bladestar but this comment was definately a troll aimed at getting a rise out of people and you called it. He cast the net and we all jumped in it. ;) But this is the Open Zone so I think you picked a poor place to attack.
Everything stated is directly from YOUR OWN comments, linked, & referenced as needed. Owning a PS3 as of 5 weeks ago has no bearing concerning your repeated, intentionally false or misleading comments. I'm glad you have PS3 & 360! I've consistently encouraged everyone to enjoy the console they own...Anyone who owns both has the best gaming has to offer right now. It's clear you absolutely enjoy making "sony leg humpers feel stupid" but when you try so hard to do that you become something much worse . . . I call it a "FanBrat" Far worse than a fan of one console or your 'Sony leg humper" which we've already established is a euphemism for your 'wife' cheating on you with a Sony rep's beer-infused grandfather . . . You, Bladestar, are a Fanbrat...forever whining to your mommy & everyone else with every twisted 'fact' flamebait post, counter-console insult, right down to you needing to LIE about your wife buying you a PS3 because you couldn't actually admit YOU wanted it - YOU bought it - YOU like it. That is what this is all about...YOU are a lying hypocritical blight on N4G & nothing more. You can twist facts, insult gamers, & claim as loudly as you can that you actually matter...but in truth you don't. You're the commercial we skip past on the DVR...You're the nonsense we all consider nonsense...You're a hollowed, empty soul without respect - deserving none. PLEASE - BE BETTER THAN THAT. STOP twisting 'facts' & posting nonsense! STOP insulting half the gamers on this site! STOP insisting YOUR console choice must be EVERYONES! STOP being the pathetic TROLL you currently are! . For those following along or even trying to 'support' this behavior, DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT . . . Take HIS: "Kojima = Sony leg humper." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "keep moaning and b!tch!ng like the pathetic losers that you are. lol." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "Thank me very much for trying to educate your ignorance.. you Microsoft haters." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "That means that a 120 GB (memory stick for the PSP) would cost $1,020!!!" http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... (Perfect example : Claiming the 120GB $150 HD is a better value than a 500GB $99 HD by instead comparing it to it's price in MEMORY STICKS...NOT HD's) "I personally do not think they are overpriced. Try getting a 120GB Memory stick for your camera, PSP or other devices." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... (but don't try getting a 500GB $99 HD) "My wife game me a blu-ray player today(PS3) with 2 games. Metal Gear 4 and Warhawk." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... (or wait...I was completely lying here & using my 'wife' to do it! I deserve your respect now...because you can trust I'm credible.) "94% of all PS3 are linux servers or used to watch movies only." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "now you want to know what is a rip off? Buying a PS3 that comes with a hard drive that you will still going to have to replace do to mandatory installs. So, you do pay for the hard drive it comes with and then you have to buy a new hard drive to play games..." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "PS3 = Tech Demo Platform used by Sony to promote blu-ray." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... "I was a metal gear fan but wouldn't pay $400 to play 1 game." "ohh and I don't care about blu-ray... at all." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... (42 days later his 'wife' bought him a PS3 with Metal Gear Solid...then 2 days ago he said she didn't buy it...HE bought it JUST to watch blu-ray movies on. Which lie do we believe?) "This are some things Sony has that Microsoft does not: * Their console is last. * The most difficult and expensive console to develop on. * Financial problems. * The lowest software attach rate. * The priciest console in the market. * An inferior online service. * Inferior 3rd party port support. * Not enough money to pay developers to make DLC. * A bunch of brainless, ignorant, uneducated most loyal bunch of Sony leg humpers. * N4G. * Haze." http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... (Depending on which lie is most convenient for him...LESS THAN 30 days later lying-Bladestar or lying-wife bought a PS3.) So...who do we believe? The guy with such a hatred & bias he'll pimp his own wife in a lie? Fabricate facts, twist & mislead gamers & has less respect for YOU than he does for his wife...and look how he lied about her. There is no 'opinion' to state here...there is only the truth.
I accept your apology . . . and can understand how sorry you are to disagree with my opinion, because I have not offered one. What I've commented in my words is not important...it is in Bladestar's own words that the facts are stated. Your comment that he supports the 360, has used a Ps1 & 2 and so imply he somehow get's a pass to be a f*cking TROLL is hypocritical BS itself, and could never be considered anything but BS. NO ONE gets a Pass to be an irritating, misleading, lying Fanbrat. Point me to where I have EVER ignored 'the constant Sony Fanboy BS' ? ? ? I routinely call out BOTH sides of YOUR stupid console 'war' and equally make fun of you. What I DO find interesting is by YOUR OWN LOGIC...Bladestar is the one that is appalling! YOU said it yourself...To attack Bladestar - a 360 supporter & ignore the other Sony Fanbrats is appalling...BUT WHERE IS BLADESTAR OR YOURSELF FOR THAT MATTER opposing 360 Fabrats, like Bladestar...causing just as much trouble and nonsense? WELL? YOU yourself set the rules. By their definition, it's YOU who is as appalling as Bladestar. It's YOU who is supporting this petty pre-school Cult of the Console war. It's YOU who has identified yourself and Bladestar as just as much of the problem. Gamers like me who support all gaming, on all platforms are the solution. Sneering at the one you like the least, isn't. You have proven on my behalf, that my comments where neither Pathetic, Pointless or Confused...Thank you. Please...take your own advice & the time to "Get a clue of who the actual people are that are ruining this site then you can start pointing fingers to people that spread sh1t." Now go little child...Go become a better gamer.
LOL you PM me this "Oh...Hey... I don't know if I mentioned it, but... F U K C Y 0 U ! - lol Lol...the last word is so sweet when sent to a BIASED WORTHLESS FANBRAT...remember that the next time you try telling a gamer what to do, and how to do it. You'll lose...every time. But I'm sure your USED to be a loser. Go little child...go become a better gamer." and then you turn tail, block me and then run. You pathetic little kid. You are the worst kind of Sony Droid. You try and portray yourself as unbiased yet you say things like this. You are just another piece of human trash who crowd this site with your pathetic fanboyism. You attack me cause i pointed you out that you were wrong about bladestar. LOL. It seems that you are the immature little child. Looks like you didn't get the last word before you blocked me now does it....dumbass. I had to edit the F U part as that kind of language is not accepted in the forums....
Oh, now where did I put that apology? That's right...you don't deserve one BECAUSE: I blocked you...AFTER your PM, telling me Bladestar could post here...but not me. Hypocrite! You said it was OK for Bladestar to TROLL...but NOT ok for me to point him out for what he is... Hypocrite! You said Bladestar gives sources for his 'opinions' so it's OK for him to troll! Hypocrite! You said my views of him and calling him out where wrong...ALL comments are referenced from Bladestar himself. ALL CONVENIENTLY IGNORED BY YOU. Hypocrite! You said if I wanted to point fingers at troll I have to do it in the Gamer Zone...BUT BLADESTAR GETS A PASS FROM YOU to do it in the open zone! Hypocrite! You claim I attack Bladestar while ignoring Sony Fanboy Troll BS...In fact YOU are ignoring my long & clear history against ALL Fanbrats...Ignoring YOUR OWN history showing you ARE one. Hypocrite! You DO support trolls - just the ones, like you, that make ANY excuse to justify the fact you worship a F*cking game console. Hypocrite! You set rules that you claim I should be ashamed for breaking...I NEVER have. For me, games are fun NOT A RELIGION. You however break your own rules established here routinely...shamelessly. Hypocrite! You claim I'm the one biased, while calling me "the worst kind of Sony Droid" Hypocrite! YOU HAVE NOT RESPONDED TO A SINGLE TRUTH POSTED ABOVE! YOU HAVE NOT COUNTERED A SINGLE FACT - ALL OF THEM WRITTEN BY BLADESTAR! YOUR ANSWER IS TO CLAIM I'M A SONY FANBOY...LOL...TYPICAL FOR A FANBRAT...YOUR ONLY DEFENSE WHEN FACED WITH FACTS...FACED WITH TRUTH...FACED WITH WHAT YOU ARE: Blame anyone else. Take no responsibility. Avoid the rules you impose on everyone else. Lie by supporting those who lie. READ YOUR OWN RULES...YOUR OWN COMMENT RECORD...YOUR OWN HYPOCRITICAL SUPPORT OF A FELLOW FANBRAT! That is why you where BLOCKED...After replying with your own PM, I replied to you...Looks like I struck a nerve of truth! I agressively RESPOND to any Fanbrat like you because without fail, when faced with the truth you avoid actually answering anything because you CAN'T. Please...prove me WRONG - Redeem yourself - Apply your own rules for everyone else to yourself...to Bladestar! - Which of BLADESTAR'S OWN COMMENTS ABOVE is wrong? - When where you appointed to insist on rules for everyone else that YOU don't follow yourself? - Which of his own TROLLING, & Attack after Attack on half the members here is falsely quoted? - What rules grant Bladestar alone the right to TROLL & comment in the open zone unopposed? - What amount of respect does Bladestar deserve when he's shown as little for us as he does for his wife? These are all reasons why you ARE a biased worthless Fanbrat. You support this...blindly, when HIS OWN WORDS are right in front of you! You follow just like you worship your game console . . . I loudly oppose it because I'm a gamer . . . and will never let you forget You're the hypocrite - You're the liar - You're the one on your knees. . Please . . . Reply . . . I have a few more last words for you... and they're just as nice.
Welcome to being the most PATHETIC poster on this site...right after Nasim. You have you head so far up Sony's ass that you can't even see the light of reality. LOL thanks for the laughs. My friends that i showed your respones to think you should see a specialist. Some think you were dropped (or thrown) on your head when you were a baby. Some think you are just an idiot who doesn't like being told that he is wrong. Bottom line: You do have some serious mental issues and you do need to see help. I wash my hands of you and your ignorance.
Just set aside your Cult of the Console Fanbrat ways... You see, if you consider being a real gamer...supporting great GAMES instead of praying to a console...'PATHETIC' then that certainly explains a great deal about you. My head's not the one up any corporations ass: Commented AGAINST the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD format war...against BOTH Sony, Microsoft, & Toshiba. http://n4g.com/up/20731/com... Consistently AGAINST poor quality gaming 'journalist' to improve gaming news for everyone. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... Commented AGAINST 'gamers' making comments against Microsoft & correcting hardware faults. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... Consistently FOR competition, including kudo's for how well Microsoft competes. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... Instructor of fellow gamers on the fine art of Flatulent Methane Zen. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... Hated Haze & compared to Super Rub-A-Dub (a rubber-duck PSN puzzle) I can't tell which is a better FPS. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... Hated Too Human & asked why hating a game instantly means you hate the console it's on. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... That's just higlights from...Oh...a YEAR AND A HALF AGO... Yeah dude...TOTALLY FAKING IT. (YOU ARE A MORON) So compared to yours again...since you wasted two entire messages now and STILL have not commented on the FACTS...How many times have you said "Sony" & "Droids" again? I'm soo glad also that your "friends that you showed my responses to think I should see a specialist" because of course the opinion of what we've already established by your record ...and from your lack of response... Validates EVERYTHING that's posted above, that you ARE a BIASED WORTHLESS FANBRAT... Why, with that in mind, your friends opinion matters so very very very very much to me that I just don't know if I should drown myself in a Dixie Cup or try to kill myself jumping the couch on Oprah. (does she qualify as that specialist I need so very much...just because I do like good games on any console & don't like liars, game console cultists, & hypocrites like you?) What do your friends think... ...Because I've already pointed out their opinion matters so very very very very much to me. As far as your other attempts: Dropped/thrown on head...Wrong-Gone-Wrong Idiot...Mental-mental-m3nTAl issue help...washing your hands of my ignorance... Well...Since, according to you...this IGNORANT SONY DROID has utterly and completely DESTROYED YOU, YOUR CREDIBILITY, POSTED YOUR FANBRAT FACTS, & OUTLINED WITH REFERENCES THE EXACT AND UTTER TRUTH OF YOU... ...What does that say about YOU, if a 'droid' dropped & thrown on the head, wrong-Gone-wrong idiot needing MeNtaL help & so covered with such damm dirty filthy ignorance that you had to wash your hands... ...So completely disassembled your little biased console worshiping world that YOU COULD NOT REPLY TO ONE SINGLE POINT? So...What DOES that say about you - Are you "DroidBot" of the year now ??? (lol...sorry YOUR terms...NOT mine!) The truth is...your replies are just intentional DISTRACTIONS because you...Can't face the facts...Can't answer the truth...Can't admit that in fact, in truth, YOU ARE WHAT YOU CLAIM TO HATE. Thank you for playing...I have some wonderful parting gifts for you... . Oh wait...I DID lie! I have nothing for you but the punishment to live the rest of your Miserably Worthless Fanbrat Life! You just have to get off your console worshiping knees first. . See...as I promised...a few more last words for you... and soooo very very very very nice. . Oh...P.s. You had said blocking you meant I turned tail...ran...was pathetic because of it...the worst kind of 'Fanboy'...human trash...a dumb ass...and an immature child. Buh...bu...buh...Butt...By your own rules...YOU blocked me. So what does that make you? ALL OF THE ABOVE - EVERY LAST THING SAID... (you are hilariously ill-equipped!) Talk about the LAST WORD...and YOU WROTE IT TO YOURSELF!!! Fantastic... So entertaining for me... So very very very very sad for you. Run along now little child...Go be a better gamer. . On second thought...just wallow in your obvious pitied inadequacy.
Even if the Xbox 360 outsells the PS3 by about 50K-100K in the U.S. in NPD, in terms of Worldwide sales for April, both the PS3 and 360 are still about Neck and Neck. In Europe the 360 is outselling the PS3, but not by much and In Japan, the PS3 sold 108,530 in April, so if you were to add EEDAR's or Patchers predicted NPD numbers to the Japanese April PS3 hardware numbers, the PS3 is STILL breathing down the 360's neck at $399, and that's just remarkable.
